After the year we've all just had I wanted to create a light and airy space to play and create in and to give us an opportunity to switch off and make some art. 

We're starting small with workshops for 3 people  so there's space around you   and I have allowed a little extra workshop time so there is no hurry  and there is  no rush. The usual tea and cake are on hand to see us through the 2 and half hours so there is plenty of time to create and play.

Should you like to be added to my workshop email  for dates into the autumn do please email me here at kate@katebuchanan and you'll get the dates before I  generally release them. 

There are  5  in person workshops to choose from and an online watercolour one should you prefer.
